HUMC Mission Trip Fundraiser

This summer a group of youth and adults from Hinsdale UMC will embark on their 4th Mission Trip to Appalachian Service Project (ASP) along with a group from Geneva UMC. They will leave on Saturday, June 8 at 7:00 a.m. from Hinsdale UMC, driving to Lexington, KY. They will stay the night there, get up early Sunday morning, go to church there in Lexington (possibly with the Halligan’s who are former members from HUMC), and then travel on to the ASP site.  

They will be at ASP from June 9 to 15, and will be serving in Salyersville, KY! It’s in Magoffin County, in the eastern part of Kentucky. They will be staying in a middle school that has showers in the gym locker rooms and additional showers in a shower trailer outside. The gym will be available for people for recreation and they have use of a field next to the football field. They will return to Hinsdale UMC on Saturday, June 15.

Please join us in making a difference by making a donation! 

The group will be serving low income families making homes warmer, safer, and drier. Any funds raised go to helping the group get there and cover some of the overhead costs. Each person going on the mission trip pays $300.00 to sign up, which goes directly to the ASP organization. The actual cost per person is about $500-$600 per person. The additional $200-$300 raised/donated covers building materials, rental vans, lodging on the way there, meals there and back, gas in the vans, water, etc. Thank you for your support for this important ministry!

about ASP

ASP provides one of the most rewarding structured service opportunities in the nation — bringing thousands of volunteers from around the country to rural Central Appalachia to repair homes for low-income families. Since 1969, we’ve made homes warmer, safer, and drier for families and provided transformational service experiences for volunteers. Last year, 16,231 volunteers served with ASP, providing critical repairs for 493 families and constructing over 60 new homes.

Our philosophy of service has remained the same since our founding: ASP encourages people to act responsibly in the face of human need and injustice.

By transforming faith into ASP service, volunteers respond to a specific need: housing. By putting aside their own needs and desires, ASP volunteers free themselves to share talent, love, and concern with the people of Appalachia and with one another. More important than construction know-how is a willingness to enter the communities and homes of Central Appalachia with sensitivity, concern, and love — accepting people right where they are and just the way they are.
